Foul Free Streaks (Foul Ball Friday)

June 8th, 2012 by pbr

Yesterday, Corey Hart hit a foul ball. That doesn’t sound like news, but yesterday was the first time he’d hit a foul ball since May 31st, so he was 0 for June in foul ball hitting. He snapped a streak of 22 consecutive plate appearances without fouling a ball out of play. And that’s kind of weird.
So, here’s where that streak ranks on the list of consecutive plate appearances without a foul ball since 2005:
